Came here as we needed to go to the obligatory Irish bar. Drink was cold and the food was good. Had the burger which was huge and tasted good. The missus had a chicken crêpe which was a bit too sweet. Service was very good and a decent place for some good old fashioned pub grub.

If you want an Irish pub where you can sit at the bar, drink a few pints, eat tayto's and watch a GAA game, there is no better spot than Bernies. He is a good host who will have a chat with you and make you feel welcome. The pub gets lots of ex pat and local visitors. Has a... More

Bernie and Kiki have just installed a new Heineken Tap behind bar. Beer tastes great .... Just behind the Guinness! You just can't go wrong here. Entertainment on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Great atmosphere

I've been here on different trips to HCMC and enjoy the ease of eating here. It's relaxed and Bernie will greet you and share his insights on whatever topic you bring up. The beer is cold and everything I've ever ordered is fresh and delicious. If you're a Westerner who needs a place that's more familiar after working all day/week/year... More

Visited this pub after recommendations on Trip Advisor. We ate and drank here and while the stream was good for the GAA matches, it lacked the atmosphere of an irish bar. The only thing Irish about it were the Magners & Guinness. The food was delicious but for a night of craic it wasn't the greatest.

OMG! We happened on Bernie's place while on a 3 day tour of the city. The food was absolutely amazing! FRESH.... FRESH ... FRESH I had Shepherd's Pie - the best ever! Believe it or not my husband had Spaghetti Bolognese. It was fantastic! Generous servings- even after you're full you couldn't stop eating -- just one more bite ...... More

great to see an Irish Bar in Ho Chi Minh that showed overseas sports eg State of origin rugby league. The food and drinks were a good price and a good setting

This bar is GREAT we were first greeted by a very friendly Australian who served us some cold beers and a packet of tayto crisps, just what I wanted after our flight. We ate there most days and I have to say the food is really good I could find no faults at all. The staff are just so nice... More

I come to Bernie's every now and then for some evening spirits, but on this particular occasion, Skewer's wasn't open yet (we had just come in from the airport and it was late afternoon) so we went to this nearby Irish pub. I played it safe and ordered a Shepherd's Pie and Caesar Salad. The pie was decent (as are... More
